Jgriff411 Posted October 20, 2017 Share Posted October 20, 2017 OK I've been shopping, researching & test driving a bunch of cars & CUV for the past 6-months or so (including all the Subaru models except BRZ). I didn't really even consider the new Camry mostly on looks, but mainly because again NO Apple Car Play(CP) / Android Auto (AA). Thanks goodness Subaru got them both updated on the Legacy!! I'm currently driving a '03 Mazda6 5mt, approaching 190k miles, and it's been pretty solid for the most part (bought new), just not sure how much life is left. In short I decided to stick w/ a mid-size sedan & have narrowed it down to the '18 Legacy & Accord. And a couple of days ago finally got to test the new Accord 1.5, which was a pretty impressive ride (a few more test will be necessary). Of course as always any vehicles looks can be subjective. Price wise both vehicles tend to be comparable give/take a few dollars & options. Subaru biggest plus of course is the AWD, and that is not even an option on the Accord. I'm still trying to sort out what features & options are the most important, but mainly safety like Eyesight & Honda Sensing are top priorities along w/ creature comforts. I don't really need anything super neck snapping fast. To me one of the biggest downside to the new Accord, is it is all brand new model, so possible 1-2 year problems galore. And I've been burnt in the past w/ new models ie. '01 Acura CL transmission. Whereas the Legacy is now in it's 4th year hopefully most of the glitches have been worked out. Of all the vehicles I own over the years the one brand I've never tried is Subaru. So please give me some other pros/cons to consider that would tip the scales even more. Thx in advance.
